Hmm,I don't know but I do get that alot.
I believe it happens because you have to just do something fancier (in this case,press Open File)to actuaaly make the picture bigger.

Default Re: Can anyone tell me what this is?

Sorry, I have not encountered anything like that. I would be careful to saying "yes" to anything that pops-up and asks you to download something. You could be putting your computer at jeapordy doing that. Try to keep an eye on it, and see if it's a specific thread this happens on, or if it's random. That might help lead a clue as to what's causing it.

Good luck.

I've been clicking the x everytime. I also tried deleting my temp files. It pops up randomly when I click on any thread or refresh the page. Thank you for your help.

When in doubt; Kick it OUT! I think you should contact FIA, she can lead you in the right direction. She has more knowledge about this than anyone and if she can't give you an answer, she can get Justin to take a look. For now, NO, do not click on it until you have the green light. This may be the 'smoking gun' that they are looking for that connects the two, even though this looks to me like something TRYING to creep in using the WebkinzInsider address as a smoke screen.

Well, I did some searching.. and seems that the Burst_728.js file that it is asking you to save is in relation to an ad.

Default Re: Can anyone tell me what this is?

Thanks For the 'back-up' Kelly. I was pretty sure it had nothing to do with WI
If you are trying to get rid of it, AnthonysMommy, why not do a disk clean after and THEN do an anti-spyware 'purge.'
When I have stuff like this showing up, I do the History delete thing, then I go to
Start Menu
Programs
Accessories
System Tools
Disk Clean
It has all of the squares that need to be checked off and will clear up some of the 'leftovers' that your Clear cache won't catch.
BUT for added assurance, I run Lavasoft's Ad-Aware (not adware, AD-AWARE) and it will even track down MRU's (Most recently Used). Those can hang onto stuff that the other two miss. Remove the MRU's and RESTART to make the changes effective. This should clear up any NARSTY bugs out there trying to infiltrate your system

Default Re: Can anyone tell me what this is?

I agree with Dixie - I've never seen that before and I use both Firefox and IE on WI. I have noticed IE "locking up" quite a bit and finally figured out yesterday that my anti-virus was spinning and shutting down IE, possibly in relation to something trying to hitchhike a ride on something else. These days all you can do is beef up your own protection and keep things clean whether its the WI website (which I've never had an issue with except for one ad that kept annoying the heck out me - have never seen that problem child since) or out and about. A while back I had a "drive-by" incident and caught a nasty bug off a website I would NEVER have expected to - was just reading a news story. Scrubbing was not a pretty process!
That was a good adage to follow - "when in doubt..." LOL!

No, not related to WI... probably not even anything bad.. just an ad that is asking you to run or save something.. Of course don't do it!
